"Unordinary Lives" photo exhibit on display in Motlow's Eoff Hall Art Gallery

Jan. 20, 2015

The international Afghanistan photo exhibit "Unordinary Lives", by Manca Juvan, will open at Motlow College's Moore County campus on Thursday Jan. 22, according to Bobbie Underwood, secretary of academic affairs at the College.

Juvan's work was previously displayed at the Motlow Smyrna Center in December and will be available for public viewing inside Eoff Hall until Feb. 5. The exhibit will commence with a reception, presented by the art department and international education, in the Eoff Hall lobby from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Juvan, a Slovenian native, has also released the photos in a book entitled, "Unordinary Lives".

According to an excerpt from the book, Juvan believes, "The stories of ordinary Afghans deserve to be both told and seen in order to remind us what the real images of war and poverty - of lives far from ordinary - look like."

"The photographs are overwhelmingly moving," said Underwood. "The public, students, faculty and staff should all try and see this powerful exhibit."

For those unable to visit the exhibit, the Slovenian Embassy donated the "Unordinary Lives" book to Motlow. Students can find the book in the Clayton-Glass Library on the Moore County campus.

Underwood will be available for students interested in studying abroad. The final deadline to apply for the study abroad program is Thursday, Feb. 12.
